Hi, I've got this spanish movie, I have found the english subtitle codec. Where do I need to put this codec thingy in order to see the subtitle, I've got AVI codec and divx player installed.
Thanks

If you have a subtitle file (Usually .srt I think) then put it in the same folder as your .avi file and make sure the file names are the same - not the extensions though.

Then you should be able to open the .avi and the subs will display.

Yes, just change the filename of the subtitles, not the extension.

You probably don't have the codec installed to display subtitles. VLC does this automatically so you don't need codecs.

The file name for the subtitles and the video always has to be the same though.
